Is anybody into short stories here????
I like some. Joe Hill’s are good and Alice Munro is one of my favs.
I’ve read some great short story collections by my favorite scifi authors. I also wrote a short story recently that got published along with a bunch of other great scifi authors’ stories from the Scifi Roundtable!
Check out Leo Tolstoy’s short stories, I love them. Martin the Cobbler is one of my favourites.
I love his short stories! More than his novels.
I love the short stories by Fyodor Dostoyevsky and Anton Chekhov also! ?
For some reason Russian authors are just brilliant in writing short stories, me thinks ?
I agree completely Susanne! ??
Recently read the veldt by Ray Bradbury…scary..and awesome

The Angel Esmeralda, 9 stories by Don DeLillo. Birds of America by Lorrie Moore. Any book of short fiction by Tobias Wolff.

4 and twenty black birds by gaiman!!!

As a Sherlock Holmes fan, I read all of Conan Doyle’s Holmes stories. Apart from that, not so much.
Have you tried Dorothy Parker, or Dorothy L Sayers?
Yes Dorothy Sayers!!!
Yes. I love short stories. Alice Munro is my favorite, but also Jhumpa Lahiri, Anton Chechov, O’Henry, Raymond Carver, etc. I just finished a debut short story collection, called What It Means when a Man Falls from the Sky, which I would definitely recommend.
thank you so much for the recommendations, have read Carver, O’ Henry and Lahiri, they are really good
Me! O Henry, Mark Twain and DH Lawrence are my favourite. Oh and Dylan Thomas!
I have always enjoyed O’Henry’s short stories…..Gift of the Magi
Cowboys Are My Weakness by Pam Houston is my favorite. The Red Garden by Alice Hoffman is a very close #2.
Best collections I’ve read recently, The Tsar of Love and Techno, Fortune Smiles, and A Manual for Cleaning Women.
No, they’re just too short ?
Depends on the author(s). I do like anthologies of “”Best ____ of the Year.” Yet again, depends on the author(s) and the genre.
No. They end too soon. ??
Ray Bradbury – October Country
Yes. Pick up anthologies at the library to get a quick read in. I have been tempted by the book below and have yet to try…
Yes! Anthologies are great!!
Sure do! Gaiman’s, King’s, Cheever’s are probably my favorite. I also like themed collections of short stories

Occasionally, especially those by Harlan Ellison.

Currently reading Tom Hanks’ collection and it is wonderful.
I love short stories. I particularly enjoy Roald Dahl, he is an absolute master
